Penny Black Penguin's Christmas

100_3939 by judkajudy
So much time has passed since I last stamped and blogged! I have been worried that my stamping urge was gone permanently. My stamping friend, Donna Mikasa said I should start by coloring, as coloring can be so therapeutic.

Well, I tried that yesterday and nothing good happened! Which only worried me more!

This afternoon I checked the Penny Black blog to see what this week's challenge was and decided I would try to make a card using my favorite Penny Black stamp.

Now, to be honest, these penguins are my favorites today; don't know that we have a lifelong commitment going. I love the simplicity of the image and the ease of coloring these cute little guys.

I am hoping that the first card is the hardest and that it marks the start of a rush of creativity.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Judy. It's really good to see a post from you - been missing you so much! Love your adorable penguins, especially the one snowy, little guy! I've been struggling lots with mojo lately too. Sending you hugs! :)

hey Judy, you know how it is....your favorite stamp of all time is ALWAYS the one you are stamping with at the moment hehehehe. I am glad to see you back and am not surprised that you haven't had the creative urge...you have had an awful lot on your plate these last few months. when Joe was so ill I could sign my name much less color and create. Don't worry, the mojo will keep coming back!

These little penguins put a smile on my face when I noticed them on Flickr...I'm so happy to see you posting to your blog again! I've missed you, my friend. Inspiration to create is a fickle thing, I usually check the calendar to see what birthdays are coming up and start from there. Making cards for friends and family always refocuses me back to why I love card making.
Hugs and blessings!

They're darling, Judy! Be patient with yourself and don't panic; creativity will return. So glad to see you blogging again. Sending some hugs!

It will be like riding a bike Judy... you're on your way and it will get better as time goes on... this is an adorable card. Glad to see you back

Hi Judy! Sorry to hear coloring wasn't as therapeutic as I thought it would be. But you managed to create an adorable card, nonetheless, and it's a start!

Maybe you and L should come to Hawaii! We could color together, or just sit around and veg by the beach all day--your choice!

This is super cute, love the row of darling penguins! Glad you are back to crafting! Hang in there! Sending you lots of well wishes.

Hi Judy! Stuff happens. Maybe you are just in a XMAs lull or still trying to get through emotionally the last few months, not sure, but I am feeling the same, not able to come up with any substantial ideas, However I think you made a really cute XMas card with those penguins (which I have and have not even inked up yet, bad me). So you see, you have now inspired me. Just hang in there because I sure do miss you! Keep coloring and I agree with Nancy, check the calendar - I still will not be seen dead purchasing a card from a store, so that forces me to get out of my head and into my heart, and there, there is a love of stamping!
